Board of County Commissioners 3/3/2009 1I1 Presented
REPORT: Commissioner Heyman stated she had the opportunity and privilege along with her colleagues to bring a marathon to Miami-Dade County. She noted in the last seven years of the marathon, over 55 schools from all over the county had become a part of a marathon program training with Mr. Robert Pozo. Commissioner Heyman pointed out the 2009 ING Miami Half Marathon increased its volume in tourism for South Florida because it was well attended by people and participants from all over the country. She presented a proclamation to Mr. Robert Pozo, on behalf of PR Racing, recognizing him for the magnitude of putting South Florida on the marathon venue internationally and not just nationally. Mr. Pozo thanked the Board members for this special recognition during this economic crisis. He recognized Mr. Henry Sori, Executive Assistant to the County Manager, and the Greater Miami Visitors Convention Bureau for their role in ING Miami Half Marathon. He noted countries, and citizenships represented at the marathon. Commissioner Diaz noted the presence of Mr. Mike Sophia, Executive Director for the Miami-Dade Sports Commission, at today’s (3/3) Board meeting. Mr. Sophia provided an overview of the upcoming sport events scheduled for this community. In addition, he recognized Mr. William Talbert, President and Chief Executive Office (CEO) of the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau, and others who were present, for their involvement in the upcoming sport events.
